Italian beef is loaded with flavor. The pickled vegetables add flavor to the broth, along with beef broth and salad dressing. Serve the shredded beef in soft toasted buns.


  • 3 1/2 to 4 pounds beef roast, sirloin tip or rump roast
  • 12 ounces (jar) Italian Giardiniera, drained, less if you want it less spicy
  • 12 ounces (jar) pepperoncini peppers
  • 1 envelope Italian salad dressing (zesty Italian)
  • 10 ounce can condensed beef broth


Place beef roast in a 3 1/2 to 5-quart slow cooker. Combine Giardiniera, pepperoncini peppers, dry salad dressing mix, and condensed beef broth.

Add all mixture to crockpot. Cover and cook on LOW for 12 to 14 hours, until meat is very tender. Use a fork to shred for sandwiches and serve with crusty Italian rolls or crusty bread. Serves 10 to 15.

Best home made Italian Beefs ever!!, Member tinam11479

This has been the first recipe I have ever tried off of the internet. I am a single mom and have never had the time to cook an outstanding meal that I can be proud of. This was certainly it!!! So easy to prepare, cooks while I'm at work, and my son loved it! On request, I have made it numerous times. It has such a great taste. I use the mild peppers in the crock pot for my son, but add a few hot ones to my own sandwich to give it that extra kick. And everyone has been right, let it cook. Don't rush this one!!
